I am working on two costumes for my little girls (5 and 2) they are the same size so I only had to draft one pattern!

They wanted to be "Butterfly Fairy Princesses with jingly bells". 

The body of the dresses are sleeveless in a spangly/shiny purple stretchy knit, the skirt is the same.  The skirt will have layers of tulle "leaves" attatched at the waist and gathered to fit the bodice with elastic at the waist.  It will also have some silver fringe stuff (can't describe it) and sequins with jingle bells on the front waist. The back might be held with a tie band. I might put sequins on elsewhere. 

I will also make wings out of some pink metalic fabric with butterflys on it. 

I found the tulle very hard to work with while cutting all the "leaves" .

I might also make them some sort of crown or hat.
